May is the month we celebrate mom. This year consider hosting a brunch to show your love for mom or anyone else you’re celebrating. The thoughtful details of an intimate brunch are sure to wow your guests and create a memory that will last for a lifetime.
A Special Treat for Mom
We chose a light, oatmeal colored stonewashed linen for this tablescape. Its delicate, unkempt texture creates a playful aesthetic. French linen napkins tied with a soft blue ribbon create a personal touch for each guest. Our gift for a mom who appreciates history, fashion and design is The French Ribbon book, which celebrates France's deep-rooted tradition of ribbon-making. A one-of-a-kind French enameled Morning Glory sculpture in a terracotta pot is another amazing gift option.
We designed a look inspired by an elegant French café. The organic delphinium and gentian blooms in shades of blue mixed with the grape ivy in a classic blue Wedgwood vessel are eye-catching and easy to assemble. Fresh lemons in a matching Wedgewood bowl are a simple and natural centerpiece with lots of impact. Handmade glassware made in the wabi-sabi style add a modern touch to the table.
Vintage Limoges dinner plates with a cherry blossom motif are paired with hand painted Russian blue and gold “peacock” plates and accented with gold flatware for an elegant overall look. We solely focused on the color and design of the plate ware and ignored the manufacturer or country of origin for our look. Incorporating vintage tabletop items is perfect for creating timeless looks.
Create an Atmosphere
The Flowerpot portable lamp, with multiple brightness levels, creates the perfect amount of light for an intimate affair. Its sleek design is timeless. Lighting sets a mood and can elevate your brunch celebration.
Focus on personal touches when designing your tablescape, and you won't be disappointed.
